We Eat Billions of Pounds of Sugar
You may have seen the news last week that KIND, a snack manufacturer, displayed 50,000 pounds of sugar in Times Square. The point was to show how much added sugar Americans eat. (We actually eat billions of pounds of sugar each year, but that would have been expensive for KIND.) Most of us probably know by now that our foods contain added sugars and that added sugars have been linked to poor health outcomes. Even so, we continue to eat it. I do, too. It’s hard to find products without added sugar. Even some KIND products contain added sugar!
